Week 1 The Story of Bread

The Story of Bread always starts with the ingredients. I have been enjoying using fresh ground whole grain flour! Other then that there is not a whole lot that goes into bread. 
 The yeast is one of the most important parts of the bread. You have to be carful not to kill it too soon with really hot water but the warmer the water the faster it grows. The neat thing about yeast is it is actually all around in the air and you don't really have to add it to the bread because it car take it from the air.


 After mixing the ingredients and kneeding it for awhile it has to rise...
 and rose some more...
 and rise some more although I forgot to make a photograph of it fully risen to the top of the bowl. After it is nice and huge it has to be punched down and formed into loves. My favorite loves are round cottage ones verses the standard bread-pan loves. I also like painting the loves with egg to make a nice golden crust. Then it has to rise some more...


 And finally after it has risen big and fluffy it gets baked.
 And finally eaten, yum yum!

And that is my first weekly challenge. I hope you enjoyed it and the photographs.

Week 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers. 






Week 3 Jump High

For this week I had this plan of making a photograph of someone jumping high into the air maybe with a dog next to them or some other sort of creative twist. Laura's little brother was happy to be my model and had lots of fun showing off his cool jumps and flips. It was a very challenging shoot because the overcast day made for a low level of light and jumping on a trampoline is fast action. I did manage to make a few good photographs this one being my favorite because you can see al of James and it almost looks like he is flying instead of jumping. I like how you can see the trampoline but there is a lot of space between him and it. I wish that his head was more centered in the photograph and he wasn't looking out of the frame because as it is the composition doesn't keep your eyes in the image. I did also make some nice portraits when he took rest breaks.
